Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Education Innovation and the Next Generation Learner | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.

A good review on teaching approaches used in a 21st century teaching and learning  environment.

John R. Walkup's curator insight, January 12, 11:25 AM

A good discussion of Bloom's Taxonomy that includes useful cautionary discussions about the potential misuse of digital technology. I especially liked the mention about improper strategies for teaching introverts, an issue that is often glossed over in our current zest for group activities.

I actually found this blog super helpful. Our school is in the midst of rolling out a 1:1 iPad initative to our college level students. It should be interesting to see if they are a little more tech savvy and can pick up the ins-outs a little quicker, hopefully making the transition a successful one.

With an online component, you can use the classroom for project-based learning, enhance and remediate, enrich during the online time, and you don’t have gaps in learning." ..."We went with Blended Schools ( http://blendedschools.net/ ), which provides Common Core-aligned courses that teachers can adapt and make their own. In addition to our internal time for professional development, as part of the package Blended Schools provides support to teachers: on-site training, regular online webinars and other online professional development opportunities."

Harvard plans to boldly go with 'Spocs'

Harvard plans to boldly go with 'Spocs' | Education Innovation and the Next Generation Learner | Scoop.it

At Harvard, more people have signed up for Moocs in a single year than have attended the university in its entire 377-year history. That's a great success story in opening up education, but what do you do with all those hungry minds?

 

Enter the Spoc. And the clue is in the "small, private" part of the name. These courses are still free and delivered through the internet, but access is restricted to much smaller numbers, tens or hundreds, rather than tens of thousands.

 

It means a selection process for applicants and the capacity for a more customised experience. Looking further down the track, it wouldn't be difficult to imagine fees and course credits.

Harvard and University of California, Berkeley, part of the edX online alliance with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are among the universities beginning to experiment with this more refined model.
